Preparing this fun activity doesn’t take too long – you just need a few minutes to prepare the die.

If you print and laminate the die, it will hold up a lot longer. You can also skip laminating and print the die on cardstock. Fold the sides on the solid and dotted lines and then glue or tape the die together.

If you are using this game in a classroom, you will want to print a few copies of the die so that you can use it in a literacy center. Similarly, you will want to make multiple copies of the coloring page.

How to Play

My kids absolutely love games that allow them to color – they are always their favorite! This game was no exception and quickly became a hit.

In my small group, we took turns rolling the die and sounding out the blend together. We then looked at the pictures on the page for one that started with that beginning blend sound.

For example, if we rolled “gl” we would say, “gl… glue and glove.” There are two pictures for each blend: dr, sn, br, cl, sk, and gl.

We picked only one to color and then rolled the die again playing until all of the pictures had been colored in.

When we rolled "gl," we said, "gl... glue and glove." Then we colored the pictures on the recording sheet.

Your kids are sure to love practicing beginning blends with this low-prep, super engaging printable game!
